They are starting to run in packs around here. They use to be afraid of human activity. They were starting to loose their fear of humans, so they
started to get brave enough to literally come onto people’s back porches.
We tried accommodating them. But we learned our lesson the hard way. We tried using firecrackers to scare them away. It works at first. But they
quickly learn that the firecrackers won’t hurt them, and they just have to wait until we are asleep in the early morning.
Dead newborn calves. Dead farm animals throughout the valley. Chickens, cats, dogs….. You name it. they killed a dog that weighed almost a 100 lb
about a month ago. Ate about half of him. They chased another dog into a lake where he drown before the owner could come to the rescue.
It came to a head for me when several followed me from the barn to the house. By the time I got back outside with the shotgun, they had already left.
They were not just following, they were stalking.
Everyone else in the valley has finally come to the collective conclusion that “enough was enough”
We now have a shoot on sight policy. It’s time the survivors learn a healthy fear of humans again. They seem to be getting the message. They are
starting to stay clear of any human activity now. Farms that haven’t taken any action have noticed that coyote kills have almost come to a complete
halt. We know we haven’t killed all of them because we can hear them howling on the hill tops, but they have learned they better stay away for their
own good. Just as it should be.
So, my best advice would be to shoot them when you see them. You may regret it if you don’t.
Just giving you a friendly warning. Nothing more nothing less. You may not like my opinion, but I personally don’t give a damn.
